As the all-girl band Poppin’Party continues to rise in fame, they find a poster for an event at the legendary Nippon Budoukan. Now determined to participate in the "BanG Dream," Kasumi Toyama and the other members of Poppin’Party aim to reach new heights and prove their worth by performing on that renowned stage.

Meanwhile, rival band RAISE A SUILEN dreams of changing the world with "the strongest music," but finds itself in dire straits without a guitarist. Though dozens of potential candidates audition for the role, band leader CHU² believes them to be amateurs and unsuitable for the band. However, there may be one guitarist that lives up to CHU²’s high standards.

BanG Dream! 3rd Season features multiple all-girl bands, including Poppin’Party, Afterglow, Pastel*Palettes, Roselia, Hello Happy World!, and now RAISE A SUILEN, as they work to astound fans throughout Japan with their spectacular performances. As the BanG Dream competition draws near, the band members are prepared to captivate audiences with their heartfelt music!

"Kira kira doki doki" - Kasumi Toyama (since 2017 - first season)

Nippon Budokan - the dream of many bands and idol groups. However, it is not an easy thing to achieve, but you can reach a lot with a strong will and hard work. Popipa's dream was always to play there and finally they did it!

Three months after Poppin’Party's self-sponsored live show, the local live house owners, including CiRCLE's Marina (especially famous from the mobile game), organize the BanG Dream! Girls Band Challenge. The final of the tournament will take place at Budokan. The focus is on Poppin Party, Raise a Suilen and Roselia, read more

RAISE A SUILEN or to be more precise CHU2 was mostly the antagonist to the rest of the bands during the second season, but in this season RAISE A SUILEN as a whole is peered into a microscope and showing their dynamic as a band with some rough patches here and there. Now RAISE A SUILEN as a band was missing a position that or the guitarist (which Tae subbed in as during the second season). Rokka Asahi voiced by Riko Kohara reluctantly agrees to this as CHU2 DEMANDS she be in their band. Rokka early on this season becomes a focal read more

This is the season BanG Dream fans have been waiting for.

I'm a big fan of this series and have been for a couple years now, and for as well written as the mobile game's story was, I (and many other people) were just waiting for the egg to hatch. There was so much potential in this series, and to have it written off as just more shoveled out seasonal garbage was disheartening.

It's unfortunate that the road to get here was littered with rubbish. Season 1 was extraordinarily bad, and season 2 was lukewarm at best and fell flat at worst. For everybody who got that read more

Cute girls doing cute things, is what this anime speaks at you, but it's much more than that. You know, there's something about BanG Dream! that really captures my heart. I don't know if it's the VA's, rhythm game, or the songs, but BanG Dream has really changed me. I've followed Bandori for about 2 years now and I have to say, that it has aged very well. From the shaky first season to now, I can't believe I'm saying this but, season three is the best so far.

Just a continuation from the last season but we finally see Rokka's full potential and growth read more
